Reflections on inclusion in citizen science from some of the ongoing EU-funded projects

CitieS-Health We take inclusivity to encompass different aspects of the general problem we address in the CitieS_Health project, i.e. how residents’ health is affected by the pollution in their living environments. First inclusivity refers to the different disciplinary fields involved: environmental epidemiology, sociology, history, and ethics, among others. Second, it refers to the attention to…

CoAct

CoAct (Co-designing Citizen Social Science for Collective Action) proposes a radically new approach to face four “wicked” social global issues by engaging vulnerable citizens acting as co-researchers. The approach represents a new understanding of the underexplored field of Citizen Social Science, understood here as participatory research co-designed and directly driven by citizen groups sharing a…

You choose what to investigate on air pollution and health!

by Raul Toran from CitieS-Health project team Thanks to those who have previously participated in the CitieS-Health Barcelona pilot project activities, we know what is most important in Barcelona about air pollution and its impact on health. Since September, 1,000 strawberry plants have been monitoring the quality of the air in Barcelona. In the meantime,…

Measuring Impact of Citizen Science

The MICS project develops the approaches needed to evaluate Citizen Science impacts and will create an easy-to-use online tool that lets project managers and policy makers understand how to maximise the positive impacts of Citizen Science projects.  Alongside this, we also have adopted the best practice generated by the Ground Truth 2.0 project in the co-design of ‘hands on’ Citizen Science. Four sites in…
